When it comes to the selective isolation of Pseudomonas spp, utilizing freeze-dried supplements can be a valuable tool in microbiological laboratories. One commonly used freeze-dried supplement for this purpose is the Pseudomonas CN Supplement. This supplement is specifically designed to aid in the selective isolation of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a clinically significant species known for its pathogenic potential. The formulation of the Pseudomonas CN Supplement typically includes cetrimide and nalidixic acid, which work synergistically to enhance the recovery of P. aeruginosa while inhibiting the growth of other competing microorganisms, such as Proteus and Providencia spp.

Another freeze-dried supplement worth mentioning is the CFC (PSEUDOMONAS) SELECTAVIAL, which is used for preparing Modified CFC medium. This medium is also employed for the selective isolation of Pseudomonas spp in various samples. The CFC (PSEUDOMONAS) SELECTAVIAL contains a combination of antibiotics like Cephalothin, Fusidic acid, and Cetrimide, which target specific characteristics of Pseudomonas species, aiding in their isolation and identification.

By incorporating these freeze-dried supplements into microbiological procedures, laboratories can improve the efficiency and accuracy of isolating Pseudomonas spp from complex microbial populations. These supplements play a crucial role in creating selective environments that promote the growth of target organisms while suppressing unwanted contaminants, ultimately facilitating the identification and study of Pseudomonas species in diverse biological samples.
